Good Faith SACCO was initially started as a self help group by some 8 Christian brothers and sisters from Full Gospel Churches of Kenya Githirioni on 10th Oct. 1996. The pioneers were drawn together by a common vision of developing a Christian institution where Christians could pool their resources together in order to save and eventually alleviate poverty so as to improve the quality of life for the members. They saw the need of coming together and supporting each other financially based on mutual Christian trust.. Their vision was guided be Christian integrity, trust and honesty and believe that Christians can do business in a Christian way. The self-help was also going to be a means of witness and evangelization to the members and others about the saving power of Jesus Christ. They held their meetings in the house of one of the members for a period of six months as they went through the process of establishing the organization.. Eventually members of many other Pentecostal Churches applied for membership and the SACCO started growing rapidly.
On 21st November 2001, the certificate of registration No 9709 was presented to the newly registered SACCO – Good Faith SACCO by the District Co-operative Officer, Kiambu, in a ceremony held at F.G.C.K. Githirioni church.
